Majesco Licenses Comic Book Rights for BloodRayne

Majesco announced today an exclusive worldwide agreement with Echo 3 Worldwide to publish BloodRayne as a series of original, full-color, one-shot comic books.

“BloodRayne has built a loyal following of fans and established herself as a new breed of action heroine,” said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing for Majesco. “With a movie already announced for 2005, and now a comic book, we’re thrilled to see our franchise expand into other entertainment mediums.”

Echo 3’s first BloodRayne comic book is scheduled to debut in conjunction with Majesco’s BloodRayne 2 video game this Halloween.

“We’re very excited to have acquired the exclusive BloodRayne comic book rights,” said Steven O’Connell, President for Echo 3 Worldwide. “BloodRayne will make a fantastic comic book – with a dynamic character and storyline that will translate well to this medium.”

BloodRayne 2 will debut on the XBox and PS2 this Fall. Expect XBox Advanced to have a full review of the game then.
